Kenny K Guy Stuff

Sorry this is late. Im having computer issues so this post will be short and sweet. Today Kenny K is releasing some new Guy Stuff images. These images range from the nerdy boys to the blinged out guys to super heros. I used one of the super hero images for my card and paired him with the BG Wander dp. My sentiment is printed on the dp and is hard to read but it says "Hope you birthday is packed with POW!" Be sure and check out what the Krafty Girlz did with these images on our challenge blog here where the theme this week is anything goes! Then stop by the Kenny K store and take a peek at the new Guy Stuff images! Hope you have a Happy Halloween today!

Hostess with the Mostess

My poor desk has been missing me...I would feel it call out to me every time I walked by it this week!LOL!! I finally had a chance to sit down and put together this card tonight. Todays Stamp something challenge is Stamped something (clear or rubber stamps). I used Amber Inks new set that Im just lovin Hostess with the Mostess. This new set from Amber Ink is available NOW in clear stamp or digi stamp!! I love how you can add all the accessories to her tray to make this such a versatile set! I decided to go with Thanksgiving for this card with her. I used some BG Indian Summer dp and the sentiment is from SU. I started out using this weeks SCS sc for my layout but then realized I left off a panel but I still love how it turned out. Sorry the pic isnt great we've had some rain so I pulled out my photo tent and remembered why I havent been using nephew broke one of my bulbs.
Come join us this week at Stamp Something and pull out your clear or rubber stamps and get them inky! Check out what the SSDT got inky this week here!

Angel Honey

Well its seems all my amusement in my previous post about Ski Bunny Honey was all for nothing!LOL! I got the name wrong her name its Skier Honey...just thought I'd let you know that!LOL!
Today as promised I have Angel Honey to share with you. She is a cutie too. I used a couple of SCS challenges on this one. I dont get to play in the SCS challenges like I used to so I was glad to get a chance. I used this weeks color challenge-old olive, concord grape, and cherry cobbler. I love these colors together and couldnt resist using that concord grape again. I also the SCS sketch challenge for this week. Since I made my other two Honey cards on the simpler side I decided to still go with that but this time I went old skool on this card and made my own dp. I decided to go with a hear theme since she has the heart on her shirt so I stamped the heart onto old olive tone on tone and used my copic r59 marker to make the dots. I also embossed the cherry cobbler layer with the hearts ef. I did use nesties on this one but did no sponging. I added some sakura gold to her halo and stardust stickles to her wings. I also gave her eyes, lips, and the heart on the shirt so shine with my sakura clear glaze pen. All the new Honeys are available now at All that scraps. Be sure and check out some the wonderful creations of the digi team using the new Honeys here.
Oh and I almost forgot to list my copics
Hair-r43,46, 59
Olive-yg93, 95, 97
Concord grape-bv11, 13, 17
skin-e000,00, 11 r20 blush

Have a good one!

Digi Day

Its FRIDAY and its a stamp something kinda day. This week we want to see your digis! So print them out and come play along with us. This week or last week I used a witch image from Sassy Studio and while I was browsing through their site I came across their Fairy tales images and fell in love so you will defintely be seeing more of these!!LOL! But first up is Goldilocks and she is sooo adorable!! I LOVE that hair and it was so fun to color even though just the hair took me about an hour!LOL! I printed her up as Amy would say big head size and colored her up with my copics. I used this weeks Mojo sketch for my layout. The layout was perfect for the big head panel!LOL! Since I was using a Goldilocks image I thought the MME Quite Contrary dp would be perfect!LOL! I think the pieces I used are from the Little Miss Muffet line. The just right sentiment is computer generated and I wish I would have made the font a little bigger.
Sassy Studios is one of the sponsors for this weeks Digi challenge so be sure and stop by the stamp something blog and check out the fabulous samples and check out who else is sponsoring!Happy Stamping!

Hair-e50, y21, 23, 17

bears-I used all the e30's different ones for each bear but I cant remember which ones I used on what bears!LOL!

New Honeys

I told yall I had a busy week!LOL! Im back today with two super cute new digis from CC designs. Meet Cheerleader Honey and Ski Bunny Honey (hey that rhymes!LOL! Im so easily amused sometimes!LOL!) Both of these images along with Angel Honey will be available Friday from All that scraps. On my first card I've used ski bunny Honey(teehee..still laughing at that one) and I've paired her with BG Eskimo kisses dp.
I was in the mood for a simple card so I used one of my fave layouts and left off the nesties. I did add some razzleberry polka dot ribbon along with a felt snowflake for just a little something extra. I also added some white sparkly fluff that I got from Eclectic Paperie for snow under her feet but it is hard to see in the pic. Doesnt she just look ready to hit the slopes?!

For my second card I went MUCH simpler. Im telling you this is as CAS as I can get!LOL! I really wanted to keep the layout simple no fuss with dp or nesties and I actually LOVE how this turned out!! I colored her up with our school colors and even added at TC for Tift County Blue Devils on her sweater. I had so much fun coloring up this little cutie that I wanted her to let her shine on the card. I added some stardust stickles to her pom poms and bling in the corners. The blue cs I used is from Coredinations and I have to say I just love how it pops with the white! I know my Mom will LOVE this since i used her very favorite color combo! Shes a true blue devil!LOL! I really wanted to add some blue horns to her head like a headband...Wheres Amy with all her altering of images talent when I need her?!LOL! I found this blue copic combo on someones website and I LOVE it and I had the website and the copics I used for both images written down and I cant find it anywhere! (If you find it Mama let me know b/c I was at your house when we colored these). Now its time to go check out what the rest of the team did with these super cute digis and be sure and check back Friday for my Angel Honey creation. Have a great one!

More 2 Love

Okay I have to admit...Im so not good under pressure. Im such a dunce and realized late Monday night I was supposed to have a card for today using this fabulous new set from Amber Ink. So I got busy Monday coloring up this image (well thats the easy part for me!) Im telling you if I was a stamp this More 2 love girl would be me!! I love it! So I used me as inspiration and colored her up just like me she even has a purple blackberry in her hand that I can be seen on several occasions with!LOL! Dont you love her sparkling pink and brown polka dot bag?! I have one just like it!LOL! So back to my under pressure story...I came home Tuesday after I went back to work (not quite ready yet from our Fall break) and found Mercys sketch and decided to use it for my layout. Well apparently that was easier said than done!LOL! I took this card apart 3xs! I dont know what was wrong with me!LOL!! I finally got it to where I was satisfied with it (or at least I knew if I took it apart again I was gonna have to start all over!LOL!). I know we all have days like this. Maybe it was going back to work today that threw off my Mojo so that definitely means I should call in tomorrow and stay home and stamp all day right?!LOL!! But enough about me..Are you loving this image?! She is available at Amber Ink and be sure and check out the Torchbearers creations and the new challenge. Im sending this card to a friend of mine who is having hard time so I thought it would be fun to let her know what an awesome friend she has that loves her bunches!

I have enjoyed my fall break and Im so not ready to go back to work tomorrow!! Over the weekend I had a chance to make a card just because so I went looking through some challenges and saw Jens sfytt. I LOVED Amy Sheffer's take on the sketch and since I have the nesties and havent used them yet I just HAD to case her take on the sketch. I colored up this witch image from Sassy Studio. Love her!! I used the colors from this weeks Color Q challenge to color her up. I have to say I am lovin concord grape for Halloween cards and cant believe this is the first card I've used it on! The ribbon is super yummy too! I also used a mix of some retired SU halloween dps. The small bats are from a border punch from EK success.

Smitten Weather

...I mean mitten weather!LOL!! Today brings a new challenge from the Krafty Girlz at Kenny K and this week its a sketch from Donna. Yayy! I bet you didnt know I LOVE sketches!LOL! I did have to tweak the sketch a bit b/c I couldnt wait to color up Mrs Claus for this sketch. I mean come on!! She would melt any ice around!LOL!! Mrs Claus was released last week along with several other fabulous images from Kenny including an accesory set so you can turn in of your fave Kenny K images into Christmas images! Gotta love that!!
I resisted coloring her in the traditional red so I went looking through my dp for some inspiration and found this Cosmo Cricket mitten weather dp. I think she is rocking the purple outfit. I added LOTs of sparkle and shine to her too. For her eyes, boots, the bells and her lips I used my very much loved Sakura clear glaze pen. I added frosted lace stickles to all the white parts of her suit and hat. I added sakura gold to her belt and the bells. Then I added some Martha Stewart snow glitter to the ground and snowflakes. Be sure and check out the fabulous creations from the Krafty Girlz here!

Stamp Something Halloweeney

Its Friday!! Which means another Stamp Something challenge..just another reason to love Fridays! This weeks challenge is Halloween. I pulled out CC designs Halloween Brigitta and played with her for the challenge. Isnt she cute?! Love the spiderwebs on her hat and dress. Ive been spider crazy this Halloween for some reason!LOL! I used Anyone for Anyas color challenge of purple, silver (gray) and white to color up Brigitta and I also added in some olive green for her hair for some two toned hair. I used a lighter shade of purple (Coredinations cs) than I would normally use for Halloween colors but I like how it turned out with the black and silver. The spider web dp is from Echo Park. I used Jenns sfytt for my layout.For the Glitterbabes challenge I added silver stickles to the lines of the embossed spider web. I also added some my sakura clear glaze pen to go over the punched spider, her eyes, her wings, and the spider and web from her hat. I really dont know how I ever lived without this pen!LOL!! I went over the spider webs lines on her hat with the sakura silver pen-another must have for me. Lots of sparkle and shine on this cutie! Now go check out the other Halloween creations here.

Copics-purple rv91, 93, 95, and 99

Get a Hobby

Well I was a bartender for about 10 years and now Im a guest bar-tender!LOL! Today I get to play along with the bartenders at Raise the Bar challenge. The challenge today is get a hobby. I just had to use this adorable Susie with pie image from Stamping Bazaar. I know I say this often but I just love when a card just comes together so easily. I went looking through my stamps and digi images looking for a hobby image and found this image and remebered there was a sheet of dp from the Recollections fall stack with pie on it. I dont know what Im going to do when I run out of this dp!! Its hard to see in the pic but the dp has "my oh my I love pie" on it!LOL! I used the sweet Sunday sketch for my layout. The layout was perfect for the large image. I even found some Recollections fall pearls in my stash that matched the dp. I sponged all the edges of the dp and around the image while it was still in the nesties with Antique linen. Check out the bartenders and other guest bartenders creations here. Thanks again Joni for letting me play along! BTW..Susie is colored with all the e50's copics the lighter 3 on her face and 5-9 for her body. Have a great day! I know I will today is the start of our fall break. Im so looking forward to 4 days off!!

Fall Pyrus Brigitta

Hello! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend b/c I did! I had a blast with my daughter and her friends on a Girls Inc. field trip Saturday (a Disney on Ice Princess wishes show) and yesterday we had a nice relaxing day... AND I got a chance to make a card.
I got this Basic Grey Pyrus dp in my happy mail from Die cuts r us and paired it with CC designs Fall Brigitta. I LOVE this pyrus dp but I will admit I had a hard time with the colors on it. Dont really know why I just did. I had so many markers out on my desk I couldnt begin to tell you what colors I used where..except for the hair. I do LOVEY how her hair turned out! Its a color combo from the wonderful Amys blog-yr21, yr12, yr15, and e99.
I used the Friday sketchers challenge for my layout. I added some sparkle to her wings for the Basic Grey sparkle challenge. This weeks Raise the Bar challenge is FALL. Flower, At least 2 ribbons, and Lots of Leaves. Finally this weeks Pile it on challenge is cute and charming and I think this image definetly fits that! 4 challenges! Woo hoo! Thats good for me!LOL! Im usually doing good to get in one but I do sooo miss playing in challenges so Im trying to get back to playing in them and 4 is a good number to start with. Now Im off to comment on all my blogging friends creations b/c yes I have been a slacker blogger friend again. Im hiding my face in shame over here!LOL! Have a good one!
ETA: Looks like I was late for the Pile it on challenge so it was just have to be 3 challenges.

Celebrate Something

Ccceellebrate good times...come on!! Its a Celebration!LOL! Sorry couldnt resist a little Kool and the Gang this morning. So now that I have that song totally stuck in your head for the rest of the day onto the challenge...
Todays SS challenge is of course celebrate. I used this adorable Sweet and Sassy image Cocoas gift. Isnt he so cute peeking out the box?! I need to get started on my Christmas cards so I went with that but you can use the image for bdays also. I pulled out some retired SU dp that I only have a very few pieces left...GASP!! This is my FAVE SU holiday dp and I thought it went great with Cocoa. I also pulled out some of those snowflakes and added it to my button/bow treatment.
Sweet and Sassy is sponsoring this weeks Stamp Something challenge so I decided to use their Sweet Stop sketch for my layout. I always love these sketches! My sentiment is from an H&M set that I cant remember the name of but it was perfect for the challenge. So pull out your occasion stamps and join in on our celebration this week at the Stamp Something challenge blog!
